How many drive pedals do you cart around on your board?

99% of the time I am only using 1 at a time now, mainly my Klon type pedal. However, depending on the sound I'm going for I may swap in a TS type or an OCD pedal.

I get pretty good base tones from my amp, so I only use a Tube Screamer as a solo boost. I will sometimes use a fuzz and boost that up with the Screamer to make it cut better.

-Wren and Cuff 70s silicon fuzz
-80s whiteface Rat
-80s block letter MXR dist+
And sometimes I add a JHS mini bomb clean boost at the end of the board for certain gigs, if that counts.

Because I use switching for multiple amps and one amp has 4 channels and most of my pedals have dual channels I like to keep it simple with just 5.

I like to have a clean boost, a ts style pedal and a BB style pedal.

right now it is Morning Glory- Analogman silver ts - Xotic RC booster.

Never been more happy with my drive set up!

2... Greer Lightspeed and Suhr Eclipse. Low, mid, and high gain/boosted lead sounds, and then I'll stack the lightspeed into the Eclipse if I want a little more sparkle. It's a lot of sounds out of not a lot of pedals.

Usually three:
Low/Med Gain - Greer Lightspeed
Med/High Gain - Xotic BB Midboost or Analogman Prince of Tone
High/Smooth - Barber Small Fry Burn Unit or JAM Pedals Tubedreamer

0 drive pedals for me, but my current band plays 50s music, so when I need a little hair, I just turn up my amp a bit and dig in.

Main dirt is the CBA Brothers. I have a Tumnus in front of it that I use combine with a low-medium gain sound on the Brothers to get a great medium gain tone, and then a CBA Condor after the Brothers to tighten everything up and add some drive/gain. With those three I can shape my tone pretty will and cover all kinds of drive and distortion sounds.

I also have a ZVex Fuzz Factory for some wilder stuff.

Mostly boost although the SL is set up for distortion for those time when saturation is needed more than front end gain which the other two pedals provide in spades.

I have two boards, each with two drives.

My main gigging board has a Barber 1/2 Gainer and a Barber Direct Drive. The 1/2 Gainer is a 2-in-1 pedal, so this combo of pedals gives me three flavors to work with.

My other board is smaller and mostly used at home, although I do take it out occasionally when space/weight is an issue. It has a Barber Gain Changer and a Barber Small Fry.

Yes, I really, really like Barber drives.

Never more than two: one as base tone, one to boost.
It's been JRAD Silver Archer -> Fulltone OCD 1.7 for at least two years now.

was doing 90s-now pop/rock/country covers, ended up with 5 "gain" pedals
Barber Tone Press- comp/little bit of a clean boost
Barber LTD- low gain, country/blues
Barber Direct Drive- Marshally good ness, 90s alt rock
Bluebeard Fuzz- muffy fun, modern alt rock leads mostly
EHX LPB1 or Barber Linden EQ- end of chain solo boost if needed (rarely)

the Linden EQ and Tone press also get packed onto my DI bass board for recording, along with the Bluebeard and a VT bass.
